I love both those fish, just do your research, the Moray is a formidable escape artist.

Oh yes the canopy is completely escape proof......hopefully. Front doors are locked shut to keep hands away and the back is open for ventilation but has thick screen mesh covering it. Now I just have to find a way to keep him out of the overflows.

Hmm, yep seems like lots of the larger fish will wipe out the shrimp, might just keep my 25 up and running for them haha. I'll make sure to ask at the store if they have one that eats frozen an such. Mabye I'll get lucky there

And snowflakes are beautiful, too bs they eat a lot of smaller fish, but that's nature I guess haha

Right now I have a 55 gallon tank that I got two Tangs in. A yellow eye and a yellow tang.

I saved the both from a smaller tank and the Yellow was beat up from other fish. I would say their life is 100% times better. I am upgrading to a 75 gallon soon (I was going to go 150, but life happens). So with a 75 gallon they will have more space! I am still going to upgrade to a 150 gallon, I just got to wait a little longer.

So what I am trying to say, I think you will be fine with two Tangs in a 75 gallon. As long as you put them in together at the same time! I wouldn't do a Yellow Tang in a 75, I am only doing it because both tangs were in real bad shape and I felt really bad for them. So I bought them and thankfully they are thriving!

If I were you, I would at least get the Yellow Eye Very cool looking Tang!

Also here is a list of Tangs that Live Aquaria says is good.

Hmm, mabye. I'm planning to do a ton more research into the subject before deciding anything haha. The yellow eye and the white tail are the top 2 on my list right now. Might have to get my LFS to special order the white tail though.

I'm glad you rescued the tangs, I'm lucky that I have a pretty goo live fish store an such

It was not the fish store fault really. They had the Yellow Tang in a Bigger tank at first, but the tank mates were beating the heck out of it. So the staff had to put it into the smaller tank. The poor guy was in the that tank for about a month and half before I decided to go for it. I really didn't want to buy him because of his fins being all nipped off, but I didn't know fins could grow back until I asked about on this site. Almost as soon as I put him in my tank he looked more alive and after a few weeks all his fins were back and he is a great looking fish. The yellow eye was just in a smaller tank because the bigger tank was full and someone wanted it but did not pick it up. I was not planning on buying two tangs, but I did. :-p

I have never seen a White Tail and Liveaquaria never gets them in. I've got a connection now that goes to the big distributers, so I'm going to see what he can do.
